In the case of the collection of data by the website, this is the case when the session in question has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. A storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that it is no longer possible to assign the individual user.
